Re: summary
@daniel keep in mind the MNOs were pulled into 4G by the smartphone, which caught them unawares of the impact of the independent app ecosystem.  It was obvious that 3G wasn't going to suffice which is why Jobs demanded unencumbered wifi offload from AT&T.  And arguably they've made a mess of 4G, as customer still offloads 80% of traffic.  This time there is no catalyst to pull the carriers into 5G; hence the "all things to all people" business cases being bandied about.

Agreed that the disruption will come from somewhere else, by which point it will be too late.  The vertical and siloed stack simply cannot be sustained at the edge much longer.  Certainly less than a decade.

Re: The need for settlements
IMHO Continuous updates sounds cool but the current processes, SLAs, culture and skills have a graeter say in moving in to that direction. So not qutie optimisitc that the continuous changes can happen in telco network barring few disruptor/operators.

Re: summary
These things take time. A lot of time. I remember when we were talking about 4G coming. Now 4G sounds pretty old. I think the "new new thing" is sort of how the technology world looks at these massive infrastructure investments. Because the build-out is very time consuming.

The need for settlements
"the RAN market, like the broader networking market, can benefit from a software-driven "continuous update" approach."

Nope.

What's needed is settlements.  Simple economics provide the incentives for continuous updates.  Something the IP stack lacks.

5G
This is a good rundown of RAN techs necessary for 5G propulsion, but given the myriad definitions of what 5G actually is (listening to some of the telcos talk about having/getting 5G), there are still some issues of clarity that need, well, clearing up in the space.

summary
Gabriel, will you be going to elaborate on the technologies (4G adv or pre-5G) in these radio products? I think your last paragraph summarized it nicely on what the eco-system needs. Looking forward for in-depth analysis.
